The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 Finale: What’s Next for Season 3?
The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 finale has left fans eagerly anticipating the next chapter of the beloved Amazon Prime Video series. In this article, we’ll dive into the ending of Season 2 and discuss what lies ahead for Belly and the Fisher boys in Season 3, based on author Jenny Han’s books.
The Season 2 Ending: Belly Chooses Jeremiah
Let’s start by discussing the season 2 ending. Belly, played by Lola Tung, made a decision that had Team Jellyfish fans rejoicing. She chose Jeremiah, the outgoing younger Fisher brother, over his older brother Conrad, portrayed by Christopher Briney. After years of crushing on Conrad and dating him until things fell apart at prom, Belly decided to embark on a romantic journey with Jeremiah.
Throughout season 2, the relationship between Belly and Jeremiah simmered, leading up to a significant moment – their first kiss. As the season came to a close, the two lovebirds ended the summer and the second season as a couple, setting the stage for what’s to come.
Belly’s best friend Taylor, played by Rain Spencer, and her older brother Steven, portrayed by Sean Kaufman, had different reactions to Belly’s choice, adding to the drama and anticipation for the next season.
Conrad’s Lingering Feelings: Setting the Stage for Season 3
Although Belly ended up with Jeremiah by the end of Season 2, Conrad’s feelings for her did not simply disappear. In a true love triangle fashion, Conrad confessed his lingering emotions to Steven, his own brother, and eventually to Belly herself.
For those familiar with Jenny Han’s third and final novel in The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy, titled “We’ll Always Have Summer,” Belly’s journey continues into college, where she faces more choices between Conrad and Jeremiah. Without spoiling the ending, it can be hinted that travel, reconnecting with one of the Fisher boys, and ultimately discovering who she ends up with are all part of Belly’s future.
However, it’s worth mentioning that Lola Tung, the actress who portrays Belly, has hinted at potential deviations from the books in Season 3. This adds an element of mystery, making fans wonder if the TV series will follow the same path as the novels or take a different direction altogether.
When Can We Expect Season 3?
As of now, Amazon Prime Video hasn’t released a specific premiere date for The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 3. However, it has been confirmed that the cast will be returning for one final chapter. In a press release, Vernon Sanders, the head of television at Amazon and MGM Studios, expressed excitement about bringing fans more of the beloved series.
Based on the release dates of the previous seasons, with Season 1 premiering in June 2022 and Season 2 in July 2023, it’s reasonable to expect the final installment to arrive in summer 2024. However, it’s important to note that the production of Season 3 will not begin until after labor negotiations with the relevant unions have been resolved. As a result, the projected release date might be subject to changes and delays.
While waiting for Season 3, fans can enjoy streaming Seasons 1 and 2 of The Summer I Turned Pretty on Amazon Prime Video.
